Main Content

Sandy is a 5 year old female spayed yellow Labrador Retriever who was outside in her front yard playing with the kids and decided to sneak out of the gate. When Sandy realized the family was coming to get her, she made a b-line for the pond to take a swim, but was accidentally struck by a car on the side of her head and thrown to the side of the road. Sandy got up and went running to the garage where she hid in her hunting kennel. Her owner didn’t notice any major exterior wounds, but noted that her breathing was labored. They immediately took Sandy to their family vet, who then transferred her here to our Emergency Department at SLVS. The radiographs (x-rays) showed pulmonary contusions (bruising of the lung, caused by chest trauma), and Sandy was also in shock and oxygenating at 86% (100% is optimal). In trauma cases like this, the first 24 hours are critical, so Sandy was hospitalized, put on IV fluids, given IV antibiotics, IV pain medication, and also had nasal oxygen tubes placed to help her breathe easier, as well as being kept under close observation by the EC and ICU staff. After 24 hours of intensive care, Sandy was oxygenating at 97%, showed no other signs of internal trauma, and was able to go home to her family! Sandy is a very lucky girl and is expected to make a full recovery. The picture is of Sandy showing her love and gratitude to her ICU technician Stacie for all of the one on one care and extra TLC that she received while she was in the hospital.
